“So, How’d You Spend Your Lunch Break?”

April 8, 2014

skeletor

I figured I’d share this: Been going through quite a nostalgic phase recently and roughly one month ago I decided I’d get myself a Skeletor tattoo. He was my fave character in Masters of the Universe and the first Mattel action figure I got – if memory serves me correct it was a X-Mas gift. What can I say? I was a pretty big fan of Darth Vader as well!

Anyway. This is roughly 2.75″ and took about 50 minutes from start to finish – giving me enough time to have a quick cup of coffee and a smoke afterwards. The image itself is actually based on Damaged GoodsMyaah! art print available via Society 6 in a variety of formats. Check it out here and does anyone remember the 1987 movie starring Dolph Lundgren?

Ouch!

So a friend of mine sent me this and it made me laugh out loud. Shit happens indeed. Actually, I spent close to two years working as a shop assistant in a tattoo parlor and I feel I should share this bit of “tattoo superstition” with you: if you ever tattoo your partner’s name on yourself the relationship will end. I know, I know; there’s no scientific research to prove it, just me (and a lot of tattoo artists!) observing. Uh-uh! Not us, you might say, we’ve got a great thing going, right baby? Yeah well, I’m not one to rain on your parade – if you’ll allow me to be a bit “sappy” I honestly believe that a good, decent partner’ll cure a lot of your ills – but I saw some of the cutest couples inking each others names and sure enough, they break up. And on a regular basis you had customers coming in wanting to remove/cover-up the name of some ex-girlfriend/boyfriend. Things went weird after this, they say. Also with some regularity.

To add more “fact” to this superstition I gotta admit I experienced this myself. You see, I’ve had Emma tattooed on my chest and believe me, I haven’t seen her for at least five years. Or maybe it’s getting closer to ten years now. Good thing though that “Emma” easily can be changed to “Mamma”, which is “Mom” in Swedish.

Kodak Moment

August 15, 2011

Now, this is so damn cool! Italian madman Carlo at Scarey Records liked the poster I made for the then-upcoming The Bulemics‘ Euro tour so damn much he tattooed it on his calf! Now, how’s that for a compliment??! Whoof!
